Australian foils brand Foil Me continues to globally expand, welcoming Germany’s Gioacchino ‘Gio’ Raniolo and the United Arab Emirate’s Karl Dawson to their Ambassador team.

Gio is an educator and hairdresser at the Fabian Maier Balayage Salon and works for Addicted to Balayage, which is the German distributor for Foil Me. He is renowned for his colour artistry and balayage prowess.

“I love working with Foil Me’s foils because they make my everyday life much easier,” Gio said. “The results with Foil Me are incredible; they always guarantee beautiful brightening and accurate placement! The Extra Wide foils are my favourites as the extra width allows me to work any given technique more efficiently, and the Tone Me Brush allows me to absorb more product and apply it evenly.”

“I think it’s great that Foil Me’s foils are made partly of recycled aluminium and they can be 100 per cent recycled! My customers love the different collections Foil Me offer and they are so happy to have a different colour on their heads every time. I am so grateful that Foil Me is now in Germany,” he said.

Karl works at Elaine Quinn Hair in Dubai, with experience as well in London and Paris. Known for his transformative colour skills, Karl excels at techniques such as foiling, balayage and creative toning, within which he will be the ideal educator for Foil Me.

“Aligning with, and representing Foil Me, has been a perfect fit for me; I love that they are a family and how they inspire and motivate salon businesses and hairdressers whilst giving back to the hair industry and charities – to me that’s really important,” Karl said. “I have tried so many brands throughout the years and nothing beats the quality of Foil Me and how they’re always innovating their brand, as much as their products.”

These two new members of the Foil Me family add to a dynasty that’s elevating efficiency, artistry and technology for hairdressers around the world.

“We have been observing both Karl and Gio for a while; we were so impressed with the quality of education and expertise that they each have, as well as their devotion to Foil Me, that we just had to invite them to be a part of our ambassador family,” said Foil Me Co-Owner & Creative Director, Emily Ciardiello.

“It is important to us that we have representation in countries that we distribute from, and Gio and Karl stood out to us as the perfect fit for Foil Me – they are down to earth, kind, amazing educators, huge fans of Foil Me, supportive and super-talented!”
